Compositions
Jonathan Lloyd

(b. 1948)
Jonathan Lloyd's musical style combines sophisticated compositional techniques with allusions to poetry and popular culture. Irony lurks beneath the frequently jazzy and humourous surface. Lloyd composed five symphonies in the 1980s for varied forces. His Mass and Symphony No.2 on Largo recording and Symphony No.4 on NMC. Lloyd's new score for the Hitchcock film Blackmail has been toured internationally and recent works have been commissioned by the London Sinfonietta, BBC Symphony and London Philharmonic Orchestras. Lloyd has been championed by conductors such as Knussen, Rattle, and Zagrosek.
